This year marks the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, a classic narrative that is deeply embedded in our culture and that still intrigues and inspires us today.
DESA, in collaboration with the Department of English, is hosting a celebration of Shelley’s visionary imagination and Frankenstein’s legacy on Wednesday, 5th December at 6pm, at the Storm Petrel Foundation as part of the international Frankenreads initiative. Our guest speakers, Prof. Peter Vassallo, Dr Giuliana Fenech, Prof. Saviour Catania, and Prof. Ivan Callus, will deliver talks on Frankenstein and its legacy. Atttendees will be able to view the exhibition ‘The Other Side: Horror, Gothic and Science Fiction’, curated by Prof. Saviour Catania, Dr Fabrizio Foni and Mr Ray Vassallo. Readings of the revolutionary text will also be done by the students of the English Department.
Tickets for our Frankenstein bicentenary event cost 7EUR, which includes a complimentary glass of wine, and nibbles.
